SNJO - Peter & the Wolf / Carnival of the Animals
Sun 25th Feb RCS, 100 Renfrew Street, Glasgow, G2 3DB
Dates & Times
Tommy Smith Director
Makoto Ozone Piano
The SNJO presents new interpretations of two universally popular children’s classics in a concert that will appeal to all ages.
Tommy Smith’s jazz version of Peter and the Wolf will remain true to Prokofiev’s premise that particular instruments are allocated to each character and the wonderful melodies will be lovingly preserved whilst actor Tam Dean Burn will narrate new text specially adapted by Liz Lochhead.
Makoto Ozone's vivid reimagining of Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals for jazz instrumentation will delight listeners and bring the composer’s animal cavalcade to life in ways that not even Saint-Saëns himself could possibly have imagined.
Pre-concert talk at 6.45pm
Sunday 25th February
Begins at 19:30
